Events

CSC Webcast - NAC Deployment: Inband/Virtual Gateway/L2

Please join Ankur Bajaj, a senior customer support engineer working with the security team at the Cisco TAC in Bangalore, as he presents Network Admission Control (NAC). During the webcast, he will provide information about NAC components and how they fit together in inband/virtual gateway/Layer 2 deployments, with authentication that can be set up locally with Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) or RADIUS. In addition, he will address typical troubleshooting issues and some best practices.

NAC is a technology framework that allows network access only to the complaint and trusted PC and actions on the noncompliant PC; hence, it goes beyond identity checking and makes the network resistant to attacks.
